Ramsey County Sheriff's Office Presents S.P.E.A.R. System Tactical Weapons Instructor Development Course

Location: St. Paul, November 14-18.    

The S.P.E.A.R. System Tactical Weapon Control program is not your basic 'retention' course; it is an extreme close quarter program that goes way past the static 'grab and pull' techniques that have been taught for years, weapon retention is only a small part of our curriculum. This innovative course includes gun takeaways, grappling with an armed assailant, grappling while you're armed, engaging an armed suspect while you're unarmed, as well as performance enhancement strategies and fear management drills. Also covers defense and control for edged weapons and impact tools.


S.P.E.A.R.™ is an acronym which stands for Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response.  It is a scientifically researched and medically supported protective program and is specifically aimed at the ‘Ambush’ moment -  the surprise attack or ‘out of control moment’ which can occur during any contact with a subject be that during interview, arrest, subject handling and movement, sample taking or even medical treatment.   

The S.P.E.A.R. System™ is behaviorally based and as such is easily integrated into any current DT, combatives, Personal Safety/ Control & Restraint curricula.  For 20+ years Blauer Tactical Systems (BTS) has been teaching its system internationally. For 12 years BTS has been delivering S.P.E.A.R. System™ Instructor Certification courses in the UK with instructors from police forces all over the United Kingdom attending and integrating the research and drills into their existing training programs, enhancing the survivability of their students during real world confrontations. The S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM  is also used by local, state and federal agencies throughout North America and we're excited to bring our system to your region.

Please share this information with your colleagues in other units as this system applies to the DT trainer, SWAT, UC or corrections.
